242. oatmeal banana waffles.

Here is a variation of the waffles I made previously, omitting the blueberries. They come from one of my favorite bookes, Vegan with a Vengeance.  The recipe calls for raisins, which are probably good, but I don’t know what milo will think of that….These are my go-to waffles for milo and since I’m home today with him because he hurt his hand pretty badly – it was the perfect morning to make him something special. I try to keep the extras on hand in the freezer, so when he asks for them, we have something yummy and nutritious to give him!

Oatmeal Banana Waffles
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoon all purpose flour
2 tspn baking powder
1 tspn baking soda
1 1/4 tspn cinnamon
1/4 tspn nutmeg
1/2 tspn salt
1 cup quick cooking (rolled) oats
1 very ripe medium banana
1 1/2 cups non dairy milk
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cups raisins (if you prefer)

Preheat waffle iron.
Sift together Flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Add the oatmeal and toss together
In a seperate bowl, mash the banana really well. Add the milk, syrup, and vegetable oil. Mix vigorously with a fork until there are no lumps of the banana left. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until well combined. Fold in the raisins. Let the batter sit for 2 minutes before making the waffles; this allows the oatmeal to get moist and blend with the rest of the batter. Prepare the waffles in your iron.
